2017 Reserve Chardonnay
Chardonnay - 92 pts
The 2017 Reserve Chardonnay is composed of fruit from two of our organic, estate vineyards that span two different AVAs, two different soil types and two different elevations. Through the combination of both microclimates, fantastic results can be achieved. The wine leads with aromatics of caramel apple, lemon zest, white flower and ginger spice. The delicate oak adds an extra layer of complexity with whiffs of cinnamon and roasted marshmallow. On the palate, this Chardonnay is supple, elegant and in excellent balance with its crisp, natural acidity which leads into a long and mineral finish. This wine should age beautifully over the next several years in bottle.

"Shimmering straw-yellow. Pungent, mineral-accented Meyer lemon, melon and pear nectar scents show very good clarity and reveal hints of anise and smoky lees. Minerally and focused on the palate, offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors along with a deeper buttered toast nuance that builds on the back half. Finishes supple and very long, with a sexy honeysuckle note hanging on."

"Dried-grass, beeswax and honey notes, as well as dried white flowers. Pear and lemon aromas, too, which follow through to the palate, where some herbal notes are wrapped into the mix, leading to a pastry-lined finish. Drink now."
